Reflection 2015

It’s usually at this time of the year that I do some reflecting of how my year went. I feel nostalgic and melancholic towards the end of the year.

Another year will be coming soon and I feel hopeful and scared at the same time. Hopeful because there are so many reasons to be hopeful and scared because I really don’t know what’s going to happen in the future.

My 2015 was peaceful and happy.


I have learned to let go of negative people who has done nothing but ’cause some bad vibes in my life. Be it a friend, a relative or just random people that some how has crossed my path.

I have learned to accept things as they are. Accept it and move forward.

I have learned to be contented of what I have.

I have learned not to ask questions.

With that being said, I am more at peace with myself.



I am happy of all the people around me now. I am very comfortable of their presence in my life. I know I am in good company. If you have been following my blog you must have noticed I have been going out with the same people. These are the people I want to keep. Some I met only last year but made a big impact in my life. And some I have known for years. I am happy that they are in my life.

I am happy that Willow Jewelry is doing good. Willow Jewelry has liberated me. This is something that I was able to do on my own from scratch. This is something that made me believe in myself.

I am happy of my blog life. You, you and you. Thank you! You all made me feel that I did something right in my life.

I am happy that my kids are such good kids. That I was able to raise them well and has become good human beings.

With that being said, I am in a happy place.

Thank you 2015. You have been good to me.

  • Hi, Ms. Tina. I love your blog. It’s so honest and refreshing. I love your OOTD posts. Although I may not be able to afford the same items you have, it’s all about your attitude, your self-confidence, and how you are not a slave to any label, or any price range. Thank you for showing us that underneath all the glitz and glamour, you are just like all of us – you have your own trials and triumphs as a woman, a partner, a mother. Thank you for the inspiration and for the smiles. All the best to you and your loved ones in 2016!

      Hey, there’s no such thing as “fantastic life.” I go through a lot of struggles, too, like everyone. The only thing I “like” about my life are my kids! I am so lucky to have them. They are such great kids.

  • Congratulations to getting to that “happy place”. Hmmm, who might be that risk taker moving to Manila? ๐Ÿ˜‚. You must be so proud of your kids.
